Friday Fave Five


I always enjoy Susanne’s Friday Fave Five, she is a gracious host and so positive in her Fave Five, so please stop by her blog for a visit. 🙂

We had a great week, summer is good for this busy mom!

#1  I continue to enjoy my blueberry and watermelon addiction.  I am going strong in this department and have become a “regular” at the local farm produce stand.  I know I am a regular there since the farmer the other day, said,”what is your name, we see you here so often I need to learn your name.”  See I told you.  🙂

#2 OK, more baseball,  if you are sick of hearing about baseball from me just skip to #3.  SportTman got to play for our state’s State Games.  They are like a Olympics for the state.  He made the team for our region and played on the 9th &10th grade team ( he is going into 9th).  They play against 10 other regions in our state.  And his team won the gold medal, they were undefeated  for the entire tournament.  It was cool to play against teams from all regions of our state.  And beside winning the gold medal, the other cool thing, it was only about a 45min. drive for us.  Other teams had to stay  in hotels, but the big event was close by for us!!  It took place Tues, Wed, and Thurs. of this week, so you can see where I spent my time this week.  Enjoying baseball and getting a sore bleacher butt!  LOL

#3 – I finally began the process of getting rid of this wallpaper in our bathroom.  And to my relief, for the most part it peeled off so easily, in nice big sections!!  Soon this bathroom will have a whole new look and no more early 80’s wallpaper.

#4 – This simple picture taken on my deck- it’s simple, but it speaks summer to me.

#5 – Got to visit my parents for the day on Monday.  I really don’t see them enough, and it’s nice to have time and freedom in the  summer to visit with them.  The Inventor came along and enjoyed lunch and precious time with her Grammy.

How was your week?


  1. Sounds like you had a great week. I used to get bleacher butt from watching my kids play softball, but now they all have outgrown it 😦

    I totally love that picture of your deck with the birdhouse and flowers!

  2. Oh, I wish our bathroom wallpaper would come off like that. The previous owners glued it straight onto unsized drywall so it is going to be a real job to get ours off. Have fun with your mini-remodel.

  3. I love the picture of your deck! So lovely. And you reminded me that I need to be eating more watermelon before the season is over. I’ve hardly had any all summer. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I know what you mean about bleacher bum…big fun! hurts so bad. LOL
    Can’t wait to see the updated bathroom. Better post some pictures.
    I am loving the fruit this year too. YUM.

  5. Love the little bird house. That picture really does speak summer! So nice.

    I’ve experienced a few weekends of bleacher butt myself in past years. Congrats to your son and his team.

  6. love your deck picture!!

  7. That was one great week. Thanks for sharing your stories of your life. By the way, there’s a new social networking site dedicated to parents and kids, it’s called – it’s a place for Moms, Dads, and Kids! Now, there’s even a chance to win a free iPod Nano! I’m inviting you to meet other parents. And enjoy parenthood to the fullest. Thanks.
